After reading the ridiculous specs list for the OnePlus Two, which boasts premium features for under £300, we’re desperate to get our hands on one. Unfortunately, although the phone hits the UK on August 11th, you can’t just rock up to a store and hand over your cash.
That’s because the OnePlus Two operates on the same invite system as the original OnePlus. To buy one, you’ll first need to bag yourself one of these invites direct from OnePlus.
How to get a OnePlus Two invite option one: Experience Centres
To sign up for an invite, you can firstly visit one of nine worldwide pop-up ‘experience centres’ that OnePlus is opening on July 31st. There’s one right here in London, as well as the following places:
SwiftKey, 91-95 Southwark Bridge Rd, SE1 0AX
New York City
Times Square, New York, NY
PCH, 135 Mississippi St, San Francisco, CA 94107
Numa, 39 Rue du Caire, 75002
OneFootball, Greifswalder Str. 212, 10405
Talent Garden, Via Merano, 16, 20127
Cafe Coffee Day Square 44, Janpath
Cafe Coffee Day Square, Vittal Mallya Road, Opposite UB City, Lavelle Road
Conclave, Jalan Wijaya 1 no. 5C, Jakarta Selatan
It could be a good idea to register your attendance before heading along.
How to get a OnePlus Two invite option two: Social media
Secondly, you can follow OnePlus’ social channels for a chance to bag yourself an invite. You can follow OnePlus on Twitter as well as Facebook, and we’re expecting first-come-first-served invite offers to start popping up on July 31st.
It’s also worth signing up for OnePlus’ newsletter, which should reveal limited-time invite offers as soon as they happen.
How to get a OnePlus Two invite option three: Phone a friend
Thirdly, you can also bag an invite from any friends who happen to own a OnePlus Two. Owners receive invites to dish out to friends and family members on an ad-hoc basis, so if your mate shows theirs off, be sure to stay chummy with them.
How to get a OnePlus Two invite option four: Reservations
Finally, you can try and reserve an invite by adding your email address to OnePlus’ reservation list. This is used to dish out unused invites, but the list currently has almost half a million people on it, so you might be waiting a while.
Bear in mind that OnePlus Two invites are only valid for 24 hours, so if you grab one you’ll need to act fast!
